What started as peaceful protests two weeks ago in Seattle, Washington quickly turned into a compilation of looting and rioting in the Emerald City and surrounding suburbs. Gov. Jay Inslee activated the National Guard but the Pentagon has told National Guardsmen deployed to the nation’s capital not to use firearms or ammunition, and has issued orders to send home active-duty troops that the Trump administration amassed outside the city in recent days, a sign of de-escalation in the federal response to protests in the city.
Some residents in the Seattle suburb of Bellevue weren’t waiting for authorities to protect them. Video shows several armed citizens standing guard over the entrance to their neighborhood.
Cell phone footage showed a handful of residents as they stood at the end of a residential street near a roundabout.
In addition to several vehicles they used to block the roadway, at least two of the residents held firearms to further deter anyone intent on causing problems in the neighborhood, the video showed.
One of the rifle-toting residents appeared to be wearing tactical gear and combat boots, the video showed.
“All these white people – look at them with their guns,” a woman commented as they looped around the roundabout and headed back in the direction they had come from.
“Look at that little boy!” she exclaimed at one point. “He’s a young man with a gun! He’s like 16!”
Protests spread across the United States, and became very violent in major cities like Atlanta, Dallas, Portland, Oakland, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, St. Louis, and Washington, DC.
American patriots decided that it’s time to stand up and protect themselves!
Also, more help is coming in Seattle as one Facebook event alleges that Bikers For Trump are ready to defy the major’s orders and will retake the Autonomous Zone.
The event states:
On July 4th, Independence Day,a coalition of patriot groups and all who want to join are going to retake the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone for America. Antifa members are illegally occupying public property and terrorizing small businesses in the neighborhood. American patriots have agreed to come together again, remove the barricades illegally obstructing traffic, and free the people in the zone.
We are not going to hurt anybody, break the law, etc. We are simply going to tear down the illegal barriers on public property, clean up the mess these communist kids made, and return the police station over to Seattle Police Department control
*The staging area will be Seward Park. The parking lot can handle roughly 10,000 bikes easily.
